These are great recommendation for us. We are planning to have a family trip with kids after this pandemic crisis. Thanks for this.
I’m a fan of tropical islands – warm weather + the beach! And Hawaii is definitely on the bucket list!
France is deffenetly good to visit with kids, because of Disneyland.
Kids should be ages who are already appreciative and can understand so it will be considered an enjoyable and memorable trip where they can learn too. But most of the time, we just love the beach then relax and get tan
Costa Rica is such a beautiful place and has been on my bucket list for a while now. I can totally relate to the fact that traveling as a family is great for bonding between everyone.
Wonderful places to go with kids or not with kids. I have no kids but I would looooooooooooove to go to Hawaii!
So you definitely threw me for an interesting loop when I saw Pakistan on the list! I mean the other ones on this list of best destinations with kids seemed pretty obvious since they were all relatively modern with a mix of outdoor and indoor activities. But when I saw you really recommended Pakistan, I was very pleased, I perhaps would start them off with India first if you are coming from a “first world” country so as to get them used to the crowds of people. But I like this list a lot!
Once pandemic is over, my fiancé and I will probably go on vacation to my parents in Norway. Right now their borders are closed off so I can’t visit them! Can’t wait to travel again!
After years and years of travelling with kids I honestly couldn’t say which countries are ‘best’. I think it depends on many different factors – one of them being the kids 😀
I second Australia. It has a lot of fun adventures for the kids to do, easy to get around and very safe.
Thanks for these recommendation! We would love to visit the rest of the country, after Australia 🙂
I don’t have kids yet but France is one of my dream to visit because of their beautiful tourist spots and the eiffel tower so lovely.
some great choice of counties and I would pick costa Rica and Australia definitely. True planning for a family trip is critical and as you said, a well-established travel agency always helps
Costa Rica is such a beautiful place and my kids enjoyed our vacation there. Australia is on my list of places to visit.
such a great number of locations, i would love for things to get back to normal so then i can travel again
I really want to take my kids to Hawaii. My daughter has been begging to go since she was 5.
These are the dream destinations I’ve ever dreamed of since I was a kid. Hopefully I’ve got the chance to visit each one.
I completely agree that traveling as a family is great for family bonding. I’m also glad that India is included in the list…it’s in my list too.
I love the tips and advice. Thanks
I agree Pakistan is under rated and under explored, especially with kids. Nice post
Now that our kids are getting older with my youngest of three being four years old we want to travel more. I like the Hawaii idea!!
All these destinations look and sound amazing. One of the coolest thing about it for me is you can travel to these places with your kids and have a lot of fun sightseeing with them.
